I don't know. From my perspective it couldn't have ended any better! Got a ride back to town and everything. How your wheel is ok after riding on it for a few miles. I've got a 70/30 tire you can have if you want it.

Thanks Kray but I've got a new one, I just like to squeeze every mile that I can out of them. I think I got 600 out of that one. Besides it is a speed equalizer so Rick and Shane can keep up.

Good deal! I had a great time watching you guys bounce off each other. One day I'll keep up but until then I'll hang out in the rear where it's safe.

Time to start picking the next place. Maybe something around Knoxville this time and late afternoon/evening?

I vote for NOT that time of day. I don't ride at night, plus that doesn't leave time for a group ride.

What usually goes down on bike night at Time Warp? We tried to make it out last week but everyone was pretty much gone by the time we got there. Is there a normal protocol?

Walk around
Ogle some cool bikes
Grab a bite to eat or something to drink inside
Head back out and look at the bikes that have arrived while you were inside
Guess what bike Wimpy owns this week
Look up at someone trying to look cool revving an engine as they ride by, shake your head
See what strange contraption someone just rode up on
Try to figure out how someone as old as the guy beside you can still walk much less ride
Get a raffle ticket for a Hotdog Smoothie
Lose the raffle
Listen to folks startup and leave (notice that the old kickers seem to start better than my electric)
Smile while riding home

In all seriousness it's a laid back affair.

Some nights are better than others like meeting night, I was there a few weeks ago and it was loaded with bikes. I got to meet some great folks who ride and restore old machines and had a good chat with former superbike racer. Its just a great place for sure!
